Advancing concepts in occupational transitions: Analyzing the micro and macro dialectical using work transition narratives.


‚ÄčThis presentation will focus on how people with illness, disability, or those experiencing expected and unexpected work loss make sense of their in-transition experiences of work disruption or change. We draw on concepts of micro and macro occupational transitions to deepen the understanding of the confusing, contradictory, or opposing information in finding a way back to work. In particular, we identify through N=15 narratives the mechanisms that people use to tackle uncertainty and the seemingly impossible odds to succeed in finding a way back into work.
